3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler, fresh from the brewery. Nice clear, dark amber pour with a beige head. Light roasty malt aroma, flavours of chocolate, light fruitiness and hops, and a touch of coffee. A bit thin, but tasty and the best I've had from Lake of the Woods so far.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. It could be that they poured in poorly because there was no head. Anyway, it was a beautiful amber colour. Tasted notes of coffee and chocolate. The best nut brown ale I’ve had.

Pours a nice dark Amber. Aromas of cherry and sweet malt. Similar flavours follow with a pleasing hoppiness. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at the brewpub. Light amber/brown in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Grainy aroma, with hints of nougat and cocoa powder. Flavour is a simple blend of 2-row and chocolate malt, with a bit of a toffee note on the back end. Watery bodied, with a clean finish. Simple and a bit on the bland side.
